with 303 electoral votes, florida is still up in the air although the president does have a lead there right now of half of a percentage point. now, it's important to note that obama took nearly every swing state, including colorado, ohio, pennsylvania virginia, and wisconsin. those last three really contributed to his win and to the fact that we were able to call the race relatively early last night. if you remember yesterday, there was speculation that the count could go on for several days in the event of a close race. the popular vote is very close at 50.2% to 48.2, just a difference of two points there but with nearly 100-point spread in the electoral vote, it's really no contest. congressional seats democrats did not gain control of the house, which was to be expected, but they did maintain control of the is that the, picking up seats in indiana and massachusetts, a big win there for elizabeth warren against scott brown. we're still waiting on results from montana and north dakota but departments have the lead right now. the two independents, king from maine and sanders fro

the summer. >> rose: let me ask about florida, john harris, and pennsylvania. >> it looks like florida is most likely in romney's camp. not certain. it seems to me that if obama wins florida he's going to win a bunch of other states and we'll have a map that looks more like 2008 than we've been thinking this last month or so where hi would win most of the state he is won in 2008 minus north carolina and indiana. that's an early night for us all. althoughs pennsylvania better than i do. i don't think it's been awe thenltally in play. i think there was a series of head fakes going on but that's never been a central battleground. >> rose: mark? >> well, they're winning pennsylvania because this is the first campaign where no one has to make choices about money because they have enough to spend and they had extra money and there wasn't any other place to put and the public polls make it clear it's closer. the president will win by a more narrow margin than four years ago. i think that the -- i agree with matthew the fundamentals matter most of all. ohio is a tricky place, though, because w
, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. some of the exit polling looks good, some does not, with what people think of health care and the role of government. people ask me, who should i vote for? what will they do? i have no clue. none of the candidates talked about what they'll do. it goes with what john wrote, about how small the campaign is in what is a huge moment. when you think of what is happening with our debt. trillion-dollar defic
't he, at the beginning of the night? florida, north carolina and new hampshire, as well? >> he has to sweep all the states that touch the atlantic ocean to have a chance in this race. and i think virginia will tell us a lot. it will tell us if this night ends early for mitt romney. or if we're in for a long night. virginia will tell us that. >> he still has to do well in the midwest. win either ohio or wisconsin. if we give that to president obama, where he's ahead. he's 5 votes short of the 270 electoral votes he needs. all that leaves is nevada, colorado or iowa. the president ahead or tied in all three of the states. >> that's the situation that mitt romney is in. he's got a very narrow path to an electoral college victory. he has to draw an inside straight in this campaign to win it today. he has to do all those things and the path is still narrow to win this. >> matthew dowd, we'll see you tonight. >>> and this year, whether it's tweeting, facebooking or never mind e-mailing, social media has shaped this campaign like never before. it's a new frontier for both candidates. and
yesterday, if you vote, i will win. that could be a problem particularly in florida and ohio as we reported yesterday. early voting rollbacks meant some people were waiting in line for as long as six hours to finally cast their ballot. so we'll have to see how those polls are today. >> if you need to know how late your polls are open, politico and ap have a good map of state by state closing times. you can check it out on politico's home page. we'll be right back.

think by this hour while they're still counting votes in florida and made for the next week -- there is an even greener light. we know.what the president was reelected and democrats picked up seats in the senate which is contrary to what anybody in washington i think thought even as late as today. the house is going to stay roughly the same. absent breaking news, i bring you know prescind returns from florida. i would like to spend more time on why this has happened and what it means for us going forward. i share the admiration all around 4 president obama's campaign team. they were technically close to perfect in the first responsibility of a campaign team, that is to identify and turn out voters. the planned it and executed it, and it every step of the way, they knew what votes they needed and went out and got them. they began before election day thinking favorable votes in states where they had put people on the ground to produce. take ileus appear -- technically a superb operation. perhaps some people will think by the fourth or fifth visit -- it did work. the point i wa
. virginia, pennsylvania, ohio, florida, iowa and nevada are all states that harbor a lot of swing voters. so folks here they want to make sure they encourage to vote democrat. >> the main thrust to all day long is to get out the vote obviously. we have been doing this for a while and today is crunch day so we want to get people ensure they are getting to the polls. >> reporter: now last night republicans were just as bessy at their headquarters in contracosta county trying to get the word out about mitt romney and they participated in phone banking and noticed a surge in republican enthusiasm. >> overnight, after that first debate, the energy level and volunteers have soared. and people have started to call and coming in and wanting to help. >> the election is very close. the polls are showing even in the race for rickey gillas within one point. >> reporter: republicans say a come from behind win is doable and they are hopeful and thefeeling among democrats that president obama needs to remain in office because they want him to finish what he started. now we are told here at the democratic h
journal/maris poll shows obama leading by six points. it's also close in florida. in this poll, obama has a two-point edge. that's within the sampling error. but a mason dixon poll shows obama trailing romney by six percentage points, so a mixed picture there from two different polls in such a key state. >> democrats are hoping, they're only three days away from taking back control of the u.s. house, but as athena jones reports, they face an uphill battle. >> republicans won control of the house in 2010. riding a wave of victory by tea party-backed candidates carrying a message of fiscal conservatism and strong opposition to obama care. so what's going to happen this time around? >> it's all got to go! >> back in september, nancy pelosi had high hopes for her party's prospects. >> we have a very excellent chance to take back the house. >> so did republican house speaker john boehner. >> i continue to feel confident about house republicans' chances of holding on to our majority. >> republicans have 242 seats to the democrats' 193. so democrats need a net gain of 25 seats to win the majorit
in iowa, wisconsin and ohio while the governor will be in florida, ohio, new hampshire and virginia. >> while both men have a number of different ways to reach the 270 electoral votes needed to win, we call that the path to victory, but who has the clearer path this morning? we're going to break it down with nbc's chuck todd. >> and as residents of the northeast move forward with their cleanup from hurricane sandy, we're going to ask the question how will that storm impact voter turnout in parts of the country tomorrow? >> and, of course, sandy still fresh in our minds and our hearts. people still trying to recover an dig out. there's a new storm targeting the region in the coming days. we want to get right to al roker who is on hard-hit stinld with more on that. good morning, al. >> good morning, savannah. house after house, instead of cars in the garage or the driveway, they have boats, and they are planning to get some of these boats out of here starting today, but that may be hampered by an oncoming nor'easter which normally we wouldn't be that worried about, but because of the
florida rallies. instead the former massachusetts governor emphasized the need for unity amid the national emergency. >> we come together in times like this, and we want to make sure that they have a speedy and quick recovery from their financial and in many cases personal loss. now, people coming together is what's also going to happen, i believe, on november 7th. >> so, i mean, i actually -- i don't know how much it would hurt to go further and say that the president's doing a good job. this is sort of like a foreign policy crisis where you don't step in it, and you actually maybe even step aside. i think that could be a sign of leadership as well. but he's certainly not hurting himself by going out there and awkwardly campaigning as if nothing was going on. >> i think that's right, katty. i think mitt romney did the only thing he could do which was to sort of lay low, let the president be the president of the united states for a couple days, a grace period, i guess, and the president will be back on the campaign trail today. mitt romney back out there yesterday. mitt romney didn't even

overwhelmingly and when you add florida it was 332 to 206. that ain't close, folks. not only that. he won the popular vote. helex night. no doubt about who won. he won 8 out of 9 of the battle ground states. that was sweet enough. okay? but here is the deal: a lot of people very long lost sight of. the president's margin keeps growing and growing and growing every day it gets bigger and bigger. because there are so many votes that weren't counted on november 6th and as of this morning, there is still like a million and a half uncounted votes out there, which is a amazing. think about it. the election right in the almost a month old. >> yeah. >> still a million and a half votes. many of them like a million votes in new york state. % why? because of hurricane sandy and the presinks they had to use like paper ballots and they haven't been able to count them all. parts of new jersey most of those uncounted votes are up in the -- up in the northeast. so, as they are counting these votes t the president's total gets up and up and up. right now the count is t
